We are a group of mental health professionals within Livewell SW and people with lived experience of mental health difficulties. We have come together to think about how to share our knowledge about mental health recovery, to inspire and support others. Recovery means finding ways to live as well as possible, whatever that means for the person and often involves finding hope, new meaning in life and gaining control of how difficulties are managed.

We are thinking about running some workshops which would be open to anyone with an interest in learning about mental health. This could include people struggling with their own mental health, their friends and family, people working in mental health services or members of the public who would like to have a better understanding.

We would like to know what kinds of information and topics you would find it most helpful to include in such workshops. We would also be interested in hearing from you if would like to contribute the workshops.
